1. The trailer and promo of your film Saya e Khuda e Zuljalal look promising what was one factor that made you sign this film?
Rachel: I was really impressed by the screenplay, it has a lot of patriotism and emotions in it. On top of it, my role is very strong, it is about woman power tough the role is not that long in the movie that is because the film is based on 27 leading characters. Therefore, everyone has their small plots in the movie. When I was offered Saya e Khuda e Zuljalal, I thought that being a part of such phenomenal project would be an honour in itself.

2. Tell us about your role, how is she as a character? did she challenge Rachel Gill’s acting skills?
Rachel: Razia Sultana is a modern day independent and strong woman, the one who believes that to end the corruption one has to be part of the system but one should also have enough courage to stand against what is wrong.
As a film actress, this is going to be my debut, therefore, I can say that it really helped me as an actor to learn, evolve, and grow.
3. You have done some projects as an actor for TV, How is your role in SKZ different than your previous work you have done?
Rachel: Well, I have not done much acting as my main focus has been the modeling career. However, I think all the roles which I have done were different from each other so is Razia Sultana – you can say I have been lucky in this regard as whatever role I have played in the past was different and let me test my acting skills and learn from it.
4. How was the experience of working in a multi-starer film and with such big names?
Rachel: The experience was nothing but fantastic. It is a huge cast and I never got a chance to work with all the star cast of the film. But to be very honest, just being part of such an amazing team give a great feeling. Here I would also like to mention that producer of SKZ, Dr Tauseef and director of the film Dr Umair Fazli have done a tremendous job by putting together this project and come up with a film that has never been done in the history of Pakistani cinema.
5. Any interesting incident on the sets of SKZ that you would like to share with us?
Rachel: There is no specific incident that I would be able to mention, That is because I have enjoyed every moment while shooting Saya E Khuda E Zuljalal. I got an amazing team to work with and again I must say Dr Tauseef and Dr Umair Fazli were quite a support and guide throughout the project.
6. Your favourite scene or moment from SKZ?
Rachel: As I just told you that the role is not that long in the movie but it has a very strong story to go with, so every scene is close to my heart.
7. Tell us about the music of the film, what makes it different than the contemporary films’ music?
Rachel: There is no item song in the film so that is what makes is different, I’d say. The film’s music is very melodiuos -there are five songs in the film, one is national anthem there are three romantic songs and one situational club songs. I’d like to think my self as lucky enough as I am featuring in two songs in the film. One is a romantic song and then the other one is a situational club song which I am also part of. The word club should not give any wrong idea, it has scene shot to portray a sicuation you will need to see the movie to know more about it 🙂
8. Who do you like most Rachel Gill as TV actress or Rachel Gill the film star or Rachel Gill the super-model?
Rachel: I like Rachel Gill in all the shades – Because I have enjoyed each one of it.
9. What is one particular thing about your film that you think the audience will like the most?
Rachel: First of all SKZ is a film for youth film, because our youth is bit disonected from the roots now and perhaps doesn’t know the exact story that how we got our country, What sacrifices were made? SKZ is about being Pakiatani, what should we do to make Pakistan a better place to live in. Which, I think we all need to know these days.
SKZ has a message for all of us, the film is all about Pakistan. I am sure when audience will come out of the theaters they will come out with different presuptions and prespective about patriotism.
10. Any message for your fans and readers of MediaSpring Pk?
Rachel: My message is for youth of Pakistan is that just follow your dreams with sincerity and have a motivation in your life, so you can play a vital role as a Pakistani and be able to take this country towards prosperity… never give up… and just be positive!!!
